Aquafeed Analyser

Aquafeed Analyser

Unity Aquafeed Analyser packages are complete solutions ready for the analysis of feed ingredients and finished feed for fresh water and marine aquaculture. 

Proven Performance

Unity delivers proven solutions for the feed, ingredients, pet food and forage markets. Well-controlled animal nutrition will optimise growth rates, milk production as well as reproduction rates. In less than a minute, our NIR systems provide simultaneous results for moisture, protein, fat, fiber, starch, ash, and other parameters. Our Aquafeed Analyser is ideal for every step in the feed manufacturing process, including:

  • raw material testing to guide proper ration supplementation
  • raw material testing to control meal formulation
  • raw material testing to optimise least cost formulation
  • monitoring and controlling mixers and optimising the addition of expensive ingredients
  • monitoring and controlling moisture levels in extruders and driers
  • verifying production batch values
  • verifying and documenting finished feed label claims

Reliable, Accurate Performance

The Unity Scientific Aquafeed Analyser is based on the SpectraStar 2500 XL, the next generation high performance NIR analyser based on the TRUE NIR™ spectrophotometer. The SpectraStar 2500 XL incorporates a rotating top window (RTW) sytem for the ultimate in sampling flexibility, allowing the customer to make measurements of all finished feed and feed ingredients. The SpectraStar 2500 XL's quick analysis time provides real-time feedback that allows the process to be controlled, optimising the process and providing rapid payback.

INGOT Calibrations from Aunir

The Unity Aquafeed Analyser is powered by the INGOT calibration package from Aunir. This package includes a full suite of calibrations for finished aquafeed and feed ingredients.  Calibrations are included for both freshwater and marine finished feed as  over 70 different plant and animal-based ingredients.  The INGOT calibration package covers virtually all ingredients used in aquaculture.

All INGOT calibrations are backed by Aunir's 30 years of experience in the field and comes with a performance guarantee. Calibration experts are on call to specifically tailor the calibrations to our customer's needs.

Optimised Feed and Increased Profits

The Aquafeed Analyser is fast, allowing for 100% measurement of incoming ingredients and finished feed.  This analytical data forms the basis for effective least cost formulation and also results in more consistent feed and increased animal performance.  The Unity Aquafeed Analyser allows for complete control of the mill, maximising profits and providing fast payback.
